Another Brick In The Wall

Following on from my request for a photo of a brick, here's the next poser

If you can speak French can you tell me what you think the following 2 statements say, already been through Babelfish and Google translator so I really only want those who speak French to tell me their intepretation

Epais Comme Une Brique

Profonde'ment Comme Brique

The first means 'thick as a brick'.

The second I can't make sense of.

Deep as a brick?

Probably both mean the same.

Thick as a brick.

Cheers G. Thick as a brick is the answer we wanted, but if you type that in to one of the online translators it comes up with the second statement.

Merci Beaucoup

Re: Another Brick In The Wall

They both mean the same basically. No doubt from different regions. Dialects here are worse than in UK and there is also the different languages. e.g. Breton which is still spoken around here in lots of villages.

Re: Another Brick In The Wall

The big problem with using the translators is that if you type something in French on a QWERTY keyboard there will be errors. The French use AZERTY keyboards and they have all the accent symbols on them - the apostrophe threw me for a few minutes.
